Laura Mvula gets emotional when she thinks about the possibility of Eternal making a comeback on 'The Big Reunion', and insists she would "drop everything" to organise the girl band's return to music

Laura Mvula would "drop everything" to organise Eternal's comeback on 'The Big Reunion'.

The soul singer is desperate for the 'I Wanna Be The Only One' hitmakers to appear on the second series of the ITV2 show - which documented the comebacks of pop bands including B*Witched and 5ive - so much so she gets emotional even thinking about the group possibly starring on the series.

She exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I would wet myself if they went on 'The Big Reunion'. I'm actually welling up just thinking about it. These are the girls who really taught me about music.

"I would be prepared to organise it. I'd drop everything to organise their reunion.

"I was really vexed when I found out they weren't in the first series of 'The Big Reunion'.

"It was one of those strange obsessions that never really ended. I always wanted to be in that band."

The 26-year-old singer is hoping the girl group - who achieved 15 top 20 hits in the UK in the 1990s - will perform songs from their 1993 debut album 'Always and Forever', which included 'Stay' and 'Crazy', if they do make it onto 'The Big Reunion'.

She added: "I don't think they should do new songs. I reckon they should do 'Always and Forever' if they do come back. They should definitely go back to that album.

"I've never met any of them. Vernie [Bennett] and Kellie [Bryan] started following me on Twitter. I've searched all over the internet for Easther [Bennett] but I can't find a trace. I'm after Louise [Redknapp] but that's a bit trickier because she's obviously a bit more well known."

Laura took to the stage at the Tia Maria Music Room at Century Club in central London last night (12.06.13), where she performed hits from her debut album 'Sing To The Moon' and created her very own bespoke cocktail which was served to partygoers.

The Green Garden beverage featured a mix of the tropical flavours of passion fruit and ginger beer with the sweet, smooth coffee and vanilla flavour of Tia Maria.

The Big Reunion Boy Band Tour

More 90s boybands than you can shake a stick at as the ITV2 show goes live with a line up culled from both series including Five, Blue, 911, A1, Damage, 3T and 5th Story (aka Gareth Gates, Dane Bowers, Adam Rickitt, Kavana and Kenzie).
